I am safely in Sofia. The series of mess- ups that led to me not only being here but ahead of schedule leaves me feeling very blessed and a little dizzy. My ticketed route included a flight from Prague to Budapest followed very quickly be a flight to Sofia. The cancellation of the first flight resulted in me getting to Sofia an hour earlier than scheduled. My evening included a good visit with Biss as well as conversations with Aaron and a Christian from a town about 70 miles from here named Joto. I will spend the afternoon with Joto tomorrow before meeting with Biss and hopefully Aaron tomorrow night.
